Integrated Test Capabilities

Building on the strong expertise in diagnostics techniques for elementary processes, described in other sections of Experimental Capabilities, the CRF is a leader in combining multiple advanced diagnostics to completely characterize complex systems and in applying diagnostics to the challenging environments that occur in real-world energy technologies. This approach leads to facilities that integrate diagnostics with low-temperature plasmas, high-temperature flow conditions relevant to hydrogen generation from concentrated solar power, and releases from cryogenic hydrogen.
